So as I mentioned in the introduction forum, my 14 y/o cat Willow was just diagnosed with diabetes. It will be official pending a urine test. The vet wants me to use Vetsulin. While the price is great, I'm not sure it's the best choice and I'm not sure I can get it in time. As I'm posting this, it's very late Thursday night (or very early Friday morning) and the vet's office is closed Sunday and Monday. There's no way to get Vetsulin shipped here before Saturday (I was told to order it). I may just have to suck it up and get Lantus locally even though it's six times more expensive. I'm also concerned about glucose monitoring while on insulin. If I can start insulin Saturday, how am I supposed to check levels Sunday and Monday? Willow isn't eating which is also bothering me. I'm still waiting to hear if I should give her Cyproheptadine (appetite stimulant) or not. Her diet has been primarily dry food with canned food in the evening. I'm prepared to feed her a canned food diet (pate/loaf - Fancy Feast and/or Friskies), which I've read may be better than prescription dry food. Any opinions or suggestions would be great. I have looked over much of the information on this site, but it is a lot to understand in a short time.
